to paula broadwell and revealed the affair between the two. there were concerns that some of those e-mails contained information about the schedules of several high-level generals. that sparked concern that someone with access to sensitive or classified information was stalking kelly. senate intelligence committee woman said the information should have been shared. >> so it is very puzzling, and i think was a mistake, because this thing just came so fast and so hard. and since then, it's been like peeling an onion. every day another peel comes off and you see a whole new dimension to this. so my concern has actually escalated over the last few days. >> the source says kelley had never met broadwell and had no idea who she was. the source also tells nbc news that kelley is purely a social friend of the petraeus family. that's what we know from here. live in the newsroom, keith russell, news4. >>> eleanor holmes norton spent the day trying to make certain that when the military displays the flag of the 50 states. tom sherwood is here with more on the attempts to right a small but symbo

uncovered by an fbi investigation into a series of e-mails sent by his biographer, paula broadwell, who was accused of sending harassing e-mails to another woman. that sparks an investigation that revealed her secret relationship with petraeus. but after looking at a recent speech she gave on the death of four americans in libya, people started wondering whether she and petraeus had shared any classified intel and whether she inadvertently spilled some of those secrets during her remarks. bill gross joins us live, what's your impression of this situation as it's playing out? >> well, it's certainly a very interesting situation, as you say. there's a joke going around on twitter that the french intelligence director resigned because he doesn't have an affair for six months. so the idea that an extramarital affair in itself would bring down the cia director is very isn't in my mind. there has to be more to the story. my guess is it has to do with internal cia politics. the agency's known to be using intelligence information to settle scores, or it could be related to the benghazi scandal.
paula broadwell, who remains at her brother's home in washington, d.c. he still has not commented on the case. there are new details to talk about. joining me is michael isikoff. what more have we learned about why kelley was concerned enough that the e-mails be forwarded to the fbi? >> we have learned a little bit more about the e-mails. remember, the first one actually goes to general allen in afghanistan from an e-mail account identified as kell kellkelly pat trt kelly patrol talking about his upcoming meeting with jill kelley in tampa. and what was most concerning about the e-mails, we're told from kelley's perspective is they seem to know the comings and goings of general allen, other generals at the u.s. central command and the special operations command, and in one case apparently cia director petraeus as well. there was an e-mail that went to her husband scott referring to a meeting. a social occasion with another four-star general that seems to be a reference to director petraeus. and at that point the cumulative total of the e-mails suggested somebody out there, and agai

people here at fox got multiple phone call, pointing to this author, paula broadwell and to the thyme frame in afghanistan, when the biography was being written and cia director petraeus was the eye staff commander. we're talking about 2010, 2011, before he took the position at the cia. >> greta: i take it when you go to the cia, especially head of the central intelligence agency, there is a security check or you fill out forms under oath, saying you are not blackmail material. you have nothing that is a problem for national security. any information about that? >> cia told fox this evening that they're cpm. not the fbi. but they are cpm for the background check and also for the security clearance check. this is very significant because, again, what that tells us in our reporting is that this investigation by the fbi was separate. it was not in connection to that original clearance investigation or the background investigation. so something happened, within the last 14 months to trig ter. >> greta: let me tell you, look at a composite of stuff i have put together. september 11, the as
to is this press blizzard against paula broadwell saying she sent all these threatening e-mails to all kinds of people. and i happen to know that gen. petraeus has been e-mailing members of the press with various stories, and you see it show up as a friend of petraeus or a family friend. and a lot of this is very self-serving. also at the same time when it comes to the press, you see these stories about the fbi investigation, why it took so long. oh, my god, it took months to figure out that someone was e-mailing someone? this is something that's done in about a half-hour. >> especially something this serious. i'm running out of time. i don'tcanning -- congressman, t question. we don't know where the president was during the attack, and why he flew out to vegas the next day, why afterwards he couldn't acknowledge it was a fair or attack. and if he knew about petraeus, what if he lied to the american people, which i contend on libya he did? what does it mean. >> it means he misled the american people and mess led the world. he can't have it both ways. >> what are the consequences? >> we have
to scour paula broadwell's house for any evidence? is this a c.i.a. matter? or is this a case of the f.b.i. want dog make this their matter? these two agencies may not only be as cross pups but they could be at war. it is a little weird but it is what it is. >>guest: the c.i.a. does not investigate american citizens and that is long and short of it. the f.b.i. -- certainly not in the united states. the f.b.i. was investigating this and the trail led them to general petraeus. now, at that point every alarm bell should have gone off, everyone who was involved in this would have put it right up the chain of command and the f.b.i. don't want to investigate the head of an intelligence agency that is a rival so it went to the head of the fbi and then to the attorney general, a very political attorney general. why the attorney general didn't report to congress? why did he not report to the white house. every administration i have been part of, if there was a thought that one intelligence agency was investigating a key appointee of the president and a cabinet member and particularly someone in
traced those e-mails to petraeus' biographer paula broadwell. and in the process discovered she and petraeus had had an affair. a former spokesman for petraeus said this of the relationship. >> the affair started approximately two months after he was in the cia and ended about four months ago. >> reporter: according to officials, the fbi didn't report the incident to petraeus' boss or congress or the president. until concluding its investigation last week. the president accepted petraeus' resignation friday. >> it's very puzzling. and i think was a mistake, because this thing just came so fast and so hard, and since then it's been like peeling an onion. >> reporter: roger is defending the fbi. >> but once the fbi concluded there was no national security breach by the cia director, there was really nothing there. >> reporter: he said he's more concerned about what happens next. as congress investigates the attack in benghazi, libya, as with now without testimony from petraeus. acting cia director mike morerel will testify in petraeus' place this week. the congress said at some po
